Another thing to consider is how quickly this building has flown upwards since they dodged the parking structure slowdown. It's possibly they are outrunning the schedule and the glass supplier just was never scheduled to start until early this year.
Yeah maybe the cost of temp walls is outweighed by the savings of having the concrete guys move faster.

Have we seen a facade mockup on this one? I think it's just an off-the-shelf window wall system, it's not a fancy curtain wall or something with custom extrusions and details.
